OahUUUUuuuu!!

I flew straight from Orange, CA to Honolulu, Hawaii for a week of fun with the fam! I was SOOO psyched to see Brandon again. Two weeks is WAY too long.

It was a BLAST! It was a combination of contemporary and tango. I got to partner with several guys and get lifted!! (this is new for me being 6'1). It was basically a dream come true performance.
